I was rivetted for most of this as it seemed a strong psychological thriller, complete with competing unreliable and untrustworthy narrators with interesting backstories. The plot was promising as well.

The last quarter of the novel...the end especially, was disappointing and the plot lost its way. The conclusion was unsatisfying.

Engaging characters but maybe too much coincidence

Compelling mystery and villains. Complex characters. A little too much coincidence--plot a bit tortured in its attempts to connect all the parts together.

A novel in search of a plot

It was a soap opera masquerading as a novel. I stopped listening just past midway.
